of statements coming out of russiaed too. what's the latest we are hearing. >> they have subject the kremlin has been sharply critical, condemning the violence in eastern and southern ukraine. vladmir putin is sending his condolences to the 40 people who died in the southern ukrainian city of odessa in which the building in which they were taking renew jersey and protesting inside was burned down. so a huge tragedy there. it's been greeted with a lot of anger by the pro-russian groups inside ukraine and by the kremlin here as well. also the kremlin saying they're receiving thousands of requests for help from southern and eastern ukraine. that's interesting and important. the russians have said all along, they reserve the right to intervene militarily, if they believe russian interests speakers are at risk. so there is a growing concern that russia could use the army. it's got position to cross the border from you kra into intervene and take areas, further areas of ukraine if it chooses to do so. at the moment, no such order has been given, there has been a telephone conversation between the russ
the holiday. you just bought new one. the fudging between the ukraine in a tree and kremlin backed militants is continuing in several eastern towns of ukraine. several people were reportedly killed in clashes around the rebel stronghold of study and score south bank as the army continued to circle the heavily armed separatists the government says it is also a week after the tv tower and security services building from ripples in the nearby town of commercials and onions in a balanced and several smaller towns. the rebels remain in control of key state security and administrative buildings he's been criticized for not caring of a few tees and many police leaders have defected to the rebels was going toward it at the ups and kidnappings in mud is to become commonplace international community has condemned russia for sticking to separatism and accuses moscow of planning to repeat it's an extension of crimea in eastern and southern parts of ukraine. on the lawn. the operation worst government in kiev has been gaining traction as the korean military has recaptured a television tower entrance buil
ago actually quoting from a statement issued earlier today. a short statement issued by the kremlin basically saying the referendum in donetsk in eyes of moscow represented the will of the people there. moscow noted the high turnout in those votes and made it clear it would respect the votes. wi&=p. kremlin condemned what i described as attempts to sabotage the votes with the use of violence including the use of heavy weaponry against civilians. those are words of kremlin. there was also a call for dialogue between kiev and donetsk and luhansk for the results of referendum and the organization in europe could be part of a dialogue. >> is moscow going to be worried if there are more sanctions from the eu? >> i don't think moscow will like the idea of more sanctions. will it be worried, i don't think so. so far the kremlin hasn't shown it's concerned about the sanctions from the eu or united states. certainly not concerned enough to make it change course on ukraine. >> steve rosenburg. >>> india's five week election, longest in the country's history has ended the final day of po polli
. the second thing is that the kremlin has described some of the events we have seen in ukraine like that fire we saw in odessa where about 40 pro-russian activists basically burned to death inside that a fascistn odessa as attack. we certainly have seen this characterization of the central government, and particularly the right sector which is his ultranationalist group militia that is operating in western ukraine. basically, the way that the -- orns have described are portraying this is as a continuation of world war ii. the russians against neo-nazi types in the western ukraine. >> stay with us, ryan. from joined by phone moscow. chris, thanks for joining ryan and myself. how is telling us patriotism in russia is at an all-time high. what is the risk that the situation worsens and starts to the man and woman on the street and putin in the government starts to lose control and popularity among the people. how big a risk is there of that right now? there is not much evidence of that today. awaremakers are very well that this is at work in the background. it is reflecting the fact that there i
the ukrainian border and is urging pro kremlin separatists in the east to put off sunday's referendum on sovereignty. so is that a change of heart. ukraine's leaders are convinced. nato says it's the no signs of russian troops were trying to get over to our correspondents in moscow and ukraine in a moment but first this report. self proclaimed authorities in donetsk have begun printing ballots on sunday the separatists in eastern ukraine plan to hold a referendum on breaking away from kiev. but the vote could be postponed on the recommendation of the dhimmi putin the russian president that was the head of the osce. the main cooperation forum between east and west europe afterwards he made his surprising remarks. assume that they did it. we request that representatives of ukraine se. and supporters of the generalization of the country. postpone the referendum that has been planned for may eleven with a pin. for the first time it seems russia's president is raining in the separatist movement in ukraine. putin also called ukraine's presidential election planned for may twenty fifth. i mo
to the kremlin's beat. they have the medals to show for it. buckle up india for a different kind of web video. it's been 20s years since south africa held the first truly democratic election that brought nelson mandela to power. under jacob zuma, the anc has won it's fifth term. it has blamed political problems on the country's media, particularly the printed press, which the ruling party says is fixated on the negative and not the anc's accomplishments. switch on the state-owned broadcaster where most get their news and it's usually a different story. the sabc came under fire for refusing to air campaign as of the main opposition party, the democratic aliance, the da. the network dismissed the ads as a publicblicity stunt that violated broadcast regulations. the da accused the sabc of censorship. 20 years into the new south africa, there are racial sub plots. the country remains divided just not the way that it once was. our starting point this week is pretoria. . >> the people in this country depend on the sabc for news. it isn't easy to put your message on public broadcast. >> the media has be
the kremlin. this is a late entry local fresh and exciting to see that just made it to my question is enough to support independence of the contest people's republic and its existence is stated as a copy of the office decided not to monkey around with alternatives. the statement will do. mushroom after the second is extremely close to the national scandal. you can tell you more like a surprise to all the knobs and why men including the eu wants. they are discussing the regime claims teaches in local schools the teachers complained get told to seek out water. the locals are outraged the sets for much of the pauline expected to lay station decentralization of pollock and status of the russian men which among the referendum questions but not the creation of the new state dancing habit is also documented in a sea of this calling. blizzard possible to run the ball it's how the ball a team and all. he said collins who had about ten architect it. lesson learned. it does on today but denies this. well simply announced this solves my mate nelson way and everybody is supposed to believe that the stupi
's fair to say it doesn't meet normal democratic standards, but we're also hearing now what the kremlin have to say. remember, vladimir putin suggested the referendum be delayed. we've just had a statement put out by the kremlin press service, remarkable in that it says "the will of the people of donetsk should be respected," but then it seems to fudge what actually happens next, encouraging, it seems, dialogue between the people here and the central government in kiev, suggesting that in order for the implementation of the outcome of the referendum to go through in a civilized way, there should be talks. now, it's clear here in slovyansk they don't want to talk. they consider the only conditions for talking, the army being pulled away, prisoners of war talks being begun, and their local army here, their militia being recognized. now, that's never going to happen and kiev calls them terrorists, saying the only way to respond is to send in the army. so, a messy situation, but bizarrely now, the kremlin, which many say fermented unrest here but at the last moment tried to distance itself
be that the kremlin is acknowledging that those groups have not been able to deliver the clear election victory that perhaps the kremlin wanted such as the refr rerendum they wante. there may have been some deal behind the scenes with vladimir putin and the swiss president, the chairperson of the osce where these remarks were made. if the kremlin has secured the guarantee that kiev will sit down with the rebel groups and discuss autonomy, then maybe putin has said that's what he wants to achieve anyway so there's no point. >> we've heard some say they'll run with this, they'll put it to a vote. it's mixed because it's not organized or not as organized as much as you would like. so, at the end of the day though, how much influence will putin have to bring these groups together to do what he wants them to do? >> well, i think this is a good test of how much influence vladimir putin has whether the separatist groups will heed the warnings. the fact that they're discussing whether to go ahead does imply there's a certain weight that the words vladimir putin carries. they will make their own decisio
or is that in this way the kremlin is getting ready for the may holidays. so they decided to start from the ideal picture on the fence is in the capital of ukraine. maybe for a column starts this was supposed to reach the parliament of ukraine still the self defense by just stayed until late the block to devote to find out in front of the decades according to witnesses they still explosives and file expected just into the crowds some of the activists brain come across that nutcase mosques on an almost obvious in their hands up to go see since the disappearance and its brutality much as i opened it he says and will be laid from pentagon. the event was a nice shade it's just a memory of the heavenly hundreds by that fact of ukraine and the ruling organizations to my guns self defense leaders and the rights act a sad day when not involved in these events the risk is taken by separatists in particular they captured the days of the regional state administration percentages office at the court of appeal the militants up really wanting to see you as weapons and is trying symbols of ukraine. the day before some

an envoy will travel to southeastern ukraine for talks over the release of monitors being held. a kremlin spokesman also lambasted a military assault by kiev saying it killed off the geneva accord. let's get more by skype from moscow. it did not take long for the kremlin to react to events in ukraine this friday. >> that is right. they have called the special operation. if. -- the vladimir putin spokesman said this operation is killed off any hope for the geneva agreement. he also said vladimir putin is receiving all the information on the latest developments in ukraine. putin appears to be following developments closely. they insist they continue to take steps toward escalation of the conflict and work towards the release of the observers held in slaviansk. russia spent the special envoy to the area. he is in the region right now. contact with him has been real established. >> vladimir putin warned of consequences against ukraine for acting against its own citizens. what consequences could flow from today's events? >> that is right. vladimir putin has one of consequences in ukraine. he d

up in two weeks? >> reporter: yeah. i think the kremlin made no secret about their objectives. they say what they want in ukraine isn't to occupy or to annex eastern ukraine, for instance as in crimea. instead, they want the country to adopt a federal constitution. that would give the russian speaking areas of the eastern and the south of the country a greater say. the reason for that, according to the kremlin and to those on the ground, they need to have their language and their rights guaranteed in the ukrainian constitution. but, you know, i think the analysis of it is that potentially it would open the door for the kremlin to essentially control that russian-speaking, ethnic russian area of the ukraine. you see people here in moscow extremely enthusiastic. got it. okay. donetsk is the area where the people here are from. everybody is voting yes to break the autonomy. and of course, that leads to later on down the line to perhaps a union with russian which of course is what people here in eastern ukraine want. many others want to say within a federal ukraine. errol? >> ther

distinguish between the kremlin and russia and the russian people. the kremlin's desire is to prevent a ukraine which has an open society, which has democratic and fair elections, which looks to the west for at least economic and political inspiration. this is something which for some reason the kremlin does not ukraineen though a which merges with eu -- not necessarily becomes part of the eu but the -- but establishes with the euons would not be good for russia. >> is there a historical precedent for russian behavior in ukraine? >> it is certainly true that for many russians, ukraine is not a real country, that the ukrainian people, to the extent that they have an illegitimacy, are real russians or partners with russia . this historical understanding which does not match the reality of the ukraine of the past 25 years, provides some support within russia for mr. putin's progressive policies. >> is there a reaction to in otheractivity countries of eastern europe? whether it is belarus, poland, or the baltic nations? >> the real focus now is on ukraine, but certainly poland and the bal
of fascism russia fought in the second world war. in fact, 300 of the kremlin's favorite journalists have medals to show for their work on the ukraine story. >> kind of coverage has been dismissed as propaganda in the west. but you don't have to go all the way to moscow to find biased journalism that reflects and even parrots what domestic political leaders are saying about this crisis. on the ground, ukraine has been a tough story to report from the start, with journalists being attacked and kidnapped. nuance, subtlety have been among the subtleties. our if you feel place this week. servastopol. >> the russian media are covering the events according to the russian awed yenings. >> the coverage of the western press was the most unobjective. >> watching them digging trenches in eastern ukraine mistakes one thing of world war i. >> what has startled is the ve hementions of the coverage. >> that's almost a method for the ukraine, situation, itself. >> here is just one example of that: a demonstration in donetsk ends in fighting between pro-and antirussian forces. one story, two versions, de
of the screen here, on a kremlin-run tv news channel, it is clear what moscow wants. detailed instructions for the next mornings, for locals to turn up here and vote on the referendum. just on the road, it is busier at first. all you need say passport. if you are not on the list, fill out a form. valdimir putin asked for the vote to be delayed. debate beforehand, a pretty certain outcome, clear who is in charge. results are accounted it is clear which way this is going to go. a lot of yes, only one no. >> today, turn-out in the region is 18%. for example of 1,200 votes counted in one place, 40 or so were against. >> the big question, how does moscow react to this? how does kiev respond? the armed forces so close by. >> the solitary vehicle carrying the russian flag. whose government surely fanned this this now strangely absent. >> nick, what is striking about this vote, compare with the referendum. both votes called invalid by kiev, nobody seems sure what happens now. >> we are free wheeling here in many ways. the parliament had gone wrong, doing moscow's bidding, moscow is putting distanc
things going on, the kremlin and what is being called a mascular foreign policy in ukraine. the other is the economic crisis that russia potentially already had and has been exacerbated by the situation in ukraine and what that's meant for lending and capital flows. because there's been various estimates about the capital outflows out of this country. in fact, various commentators, including mr. kudrin. they have talked about capital outflow as much as $160 billion. the capital outflow story is fading and actually could be replaced by capital inflows. i find that latter comment absolutely extraordinary. i'm going to speak to him about that. what is interesting is that he's toeing a very orthodox type line. i.e., there will nobody splurge in spending. there will be no excess spending to stimulate an economy which many people fear go into recession this year. that is such an orthodox line. the central bank has been working on a similar line, raising rates. then in late april by another 50 basis points. it's straight back, orthodox economic management which kind of flies in the face of a
popular uprisings storing them, but the kremlin is probably disappointed. >> i'll let you address what the ambassador is saying. >> i don't think it's a fall-scale civil war. in that respect it could be moving to a civil war, one in which an outside country is playing a force. vladimir putin is arguing there should be a direct dialogue between the government and the separatist. russians foreign ministry said ukraine's government should come to their senses, stop the blood shed, sit at the table and have a dialogue. should they have a dialogue with people that have a gun to their head. >> the dialogue is with moscow. without moscow, there's not a strong force. for moscow to say it, it's an effort for them to frame the conflict. it's not what it's about. >> ambassador, we have seen the police forces in the east being passive. military forces have seen defections as the crisis is unfolding. we heard a lot of comments from ukrainians in the east. one commander told the new york times: >> how much, as lincoln said - how much of this is russian interference, how much of it is a popular upris
here today? the kremlin hasn't confirmed that just yet. it is unlikely to. until he does arrive, the celebrations that are planned here today certainly suggest that will happen. now if he does, it will be viewed as a very triumphant statement by many members of the international community. many russians believe putin took back territory that was believed to have been an unquestionable part of them. >> thank you some phil black. errol? >> there's some perspective from crimea. what about russia? today is victory day. it's an annual celebration and always brings what you'll see now, spectacular display of russian pride and military might there in moscow's red square. matthew has been speaking to people in the crowds and observing this. matthew, russia's president putin said he was celebrating russia's all conquering presence. this is when russia is celebrated. putin is already very popular. tell us what you've been seeing and hearing so far already today. >> reporter: yeah. very dramatic parade for victory day as it is most years here in russia. i've witnessed a number of these kin
are calling into the kremlin in despair, that's what they're saying. >> the kremlin says they're getting thousands of calls from your cranium seeking help. >> they would say that, wouldn't they? they said they are there to help to help their people in ukraine. the u.s. as troops are being mobilized. more russian troops are there on the border. the concern is where this will go. the could change export-import outlook. definitely a concern and thenitely escalating violence again. tempers flaring. a city where, again, one third are pro-russian, ethnic russians. will be getting very intense. >> to anand angela merkel have been talking on the phone. >> david cameron talk to him on the phone and has been calls for a second geneva meeting. portugal going to exit the bailout program without putting any cautionary credit measures in place. lisbon has its first bond auction since requesting a rescue in 2011. they said they have recovered credibility. greece is the only euro-area country still part of an eight group graham. has decided went will exit the bailout program without requesting any preca
. it was a sham election in crimea , the kremlin claimed that 97% of the population turned out. , 97% voted in favor. 30%, andut was like 60% of those who turned out voted in favor of annexation. a total of 18% of the people voted to join russia, and russia seized it. russia didn't stop with that, because mr. putin realized that if ukraine decides its future, even without crimea, which was the most pro-russian the area in crimea. they would vote clearly to move westward. therefore he started the insurgency in eastern ukraine. he was hoping the west would not respond strongly to that, but the fact that the west, led by president obama, immediately began to levy sanctions was something he did not count on, and he was concerned with. that explains kremlin policies right now. he's trying to destabilize ukraine while avoiding additional sanctions. that is why he is announced he is willing to work with the elected government in ukraine after this ballot today. the same time, he continues the insurgency in the east. host: there is a piece available at the new york times online, looking at the lack

coming from the kremlin down through the proper chains of command. all the troops there have been on exercise to essentially go back to their bases. it does feel a little bit different. why might putin have done that? >> there are a few reasons that i can see as being potentially significant. one of them is logistics. the russian army works basically on a system of con description, and that has a one year cycle. we're getting to the end of that cycle. essentially, there are a whole lot of troops who have to be demobilized and that could be one reason why they're being pulled back. another reason is possibly that putin feels he is getting what he wants in ukraine without that military threat. western leaders would like to think it's the sanctions making a difference and that it is those making mr. putin think again. >> meanwhile, president putin is also calling on ukraine to immediately end its operations and withdraw troops from the southeast of the country. what you are hearing about that? >> well, was if russia is going to pull its forces back from the ukrainian border, it doesn
. it is a pivotal component of the kremlin's goal. as ukraine's inclusion within this union, i would project russia's power into central europe and europe as a whole and in the union a strong european component. without ukraine, the union becomes more of an asian construct. at present they are on to sign the treaty. it is going to be a fairly limited structure. i think the kremlin's big fear is ukraine will spill out of its grasp with the victory of the pro- western president and government leader this year and parliamentary elections that will pursue closer ties with the european union and united states. this would damage the agenda in assembling this imperial union. moscow is also anxious about the democratic contagion and the reformist ukraine that may challenge the authoritarian system or seek the allie alliesd other post-soviet states including those that are say in the winds during the union. hence in this respect the key of success could become the failure or let's say putin's failure. in allegedly defending against a western sponsored takeover, russia's leaders believe they are fighting to
to death in odessa. also the kremlin spokesman has been saying moscow received thousands of messages and requests from southern, from people requesting significance. russia says it needs russian language speakers all across ukraine if it feels tear interests are threatened. of course, russia has this is a risk of the ukrainian military. russia has tens of thousands of troops positioned in key areas on the other side of the border in western russia. at any moment, should they give them the moment to invade, they could do that. at the moment no such order has been given. the kremlin is saying they don't know what to do. they're trying to assess what their next move will be. there has been a conversation between john kerry and his counterparts here. he is calling on secretary of state kerry to do everything to do to stop that military infiltration in western ukraine. >> thanks very much. all right, back in this country hollywood has the oscars. tonight the washington correspondence dinner. plus, flight 370 will look different. what that will likely involve in this next phase next.

is not in ukraine but hidden in the kremlin and with putin. there is evidence at the special forces of russia are acting on the territory overukraine and russian money is acting here and the full coordination of the terrorists is coming from the kremlin and putin. when we talk about fighting the terrorists, we have to understand the most important thing is not just to localize certain terrorists, the most important is to localize the center where the coordination and finance comes from. that's why i want to say our crisis is in the kremlin. we have to understand the crisis of ukraine is a global crisis and the whole world has to unit in an anti-putin coalition to stop him because if we don't stop him today, it's unknown where his aggressive plans will be directed tomorrow. >> reporter: yesterday three days before the election you had 16 ukrainian soldiers killed in eastern ukraine. today one of your battalions got caught in a terrible firefighting, lots of wounded. are you losing control in the east? >> no, in this situation, it is the opposite, we are closing a ring of containment around the
from the kremlin. the kremlin seems to be changing its tune and wishing to open negotiations with the new government and with the new president. also, because the military mission will continue until the last terrorist is gone in the words of the president, that manes they fear fighting could start on any front in the eastern ukraine. what reaction will we get from the kremlin if we see this sort of bloodshed again tomorrow? will it mean they will bring troops forward to the border again? really everything is hanging in the balance at the moment about exactly what happens as far as a military mission is concerned. where will the fighting break out next, because it's sure to. >> he's reporting live from donetsk in eastern ukraine. >>> to egypt now where voting has been extended for a third day. it's part of a drive to ensure a strong show of support for want front-runner, former army chief sisi. omar bring us the story. >> reporter: despite the buildup for the election, a low voter turnout has them extending vote by a day. they have until wednesday evening to cast their ballot
in this country's conflict with the kremlin. the kremlin warned ukraine from escalating its military action in the east of the country and that's exactly what the president-elect has done. we have not just sing ground troops but fixed wing aircraft, helicopter gunships and active military combat in the eastern part of the country as the ukrainians try to expel the separatists in that region. that is a president-elect indicating he will not be rolled over. he will not give up on the eastern country. >> what is the support or dialogue between the separatists and russian? >? >> that's a good question. the kremlin says it does not have control over the separatists though it has not condemned them. we saw over the last 24 hours was very interesting in that we actually have pro-russian fighters coming into ukraine from russia itself. these are fighters that described themselves as chechen volunteers, irregulars if you will come in a part of the regular russian military but that's not how the ukrainian government sees it. the ukrainian government is accusing russia of intervening militarily in the
you think? what's the view? any official word from the kremlin or from moscow on the release of these osce observers? >> reporter: well, there's been official word that it was the russian presidential envoy, vlad mire liukin, that secured the release of those seven osce observe observers, reported in the state news agency, but there's been much more reaction when it comes to the spiraling violence in eastern ukraine from the kremlin. the spokesperson for vladimir putin, the russian president, has said that president putin extends his deep condolences to the victims of the families of those killed in odessa, and he's also crucially said this, that moscow has received thousands of requests from southeastern ukraine for help. it's a cry of despair, according to dmitri peskov, a plea for help, and that's important, because the russians for a long time now have been reserving the right to protect the interests of ethnic russians and russian speakers, especially in ukraine, if they come under attack from the ukrainian military. and so, while on one hand, the ukrainian military have
federation. but the answer has been nothing from moscow that we've seen so far. the kremlin has said they accepted the preliminary results. they were happy to see the referendum going ahead without much violence. but they haven't said whether or not they're going to accept donetsk and luhansk, these two portions of eastern ukraine, as part of the russian federation. in fact, the kremlin said that they should sit down to the negotiating table to come up with a solution, but nobody seems to be doing that yet, deborah. >> absolutely, and clearly the destabilization of that country and that region continuing. thank you. >>> now to nigeria, where this morning u.s. planes are helping hunt for hundreds of girls an ducked by terrorists. the u.s. is searching the sky and sharing satellite images in hopes of figuring out just where those girls are being hidden and whether it's them in this new video, purportedly put out by boko haram, which is promise not to release them unless prisoners from that terror group are set free. vladimir duthiers is live in abuja, nigeria. vlad, are the jie northea
there. the other thing is that russia, the kremlin backed channel, the 10 residents were killed during the operation to take back control of that tv tower - obviously we have no independent corroboration of that before, that's what russia today is saying this morning. >> the interior minister said he will not stop. what do you think he means by that. >> well, i think - listen, he's something of a maverick. he makes official statements via facebook rather than the official ministry website. i think his sentiment is expressing what is in line with the ukranian kiev government has been saying for days. i came from kiev yesterday. the acting president there, mr oleksandr turchynov was insisting that the cheest would not be a -- east would not be allowed to slip away. he introduced conscription for 18-25-year-olds across ukraine. they could be getting september out as early as monday next week. there's a determination in ukraine and in kiev in particular, of course, that the east of ukraine is not just going to be allowed to be taken over by what kiev says are professional mercenaries, dire
